About Rio de Janeiro

The 2nd-largest city in Brazil, Rio de Janeiro (or Rio, for short) gets the most visitors during its Carnaval festival, which is considered to be the largest in the world. Others come to visit the massive statue of Christ the Redeemer, built atop Mount Corcovado and overlooking the city. Rio was the capital of Brazil for 300 years, until the capital was moved to Brasilia in 1960. Many government and financial institutions chose to stay in town even after the move, one reason for the dynamic economy of this thriving metropolis. Rio’s location on the Atlantic coast also gives it a number of well-known beaches. The most famous are Ipanema and Copacabana, both of which are famous even beyond Brazil’s borders. The beautiful weather in Rio gives residents and tourists alike plenty of time to enjoy the water. Its tropical climate means it’s pleasant year-round, with humid summers and warm winters. Rio is one of the most-visited cities in the southern hemisphere. Though tourism does bring in a lot of money, the city’s economy is very diverse and it has the second-largest GDP in Brazil. Commerce, industry, and agriculture are among its top industries and it’s home to headquarters for several state-owned companies, as well as the Rio de Janeiro Stock Exchange.

What is Co-living?

Co-living, also known as co-housing, house-sharing, or room-sharing, is a growing trend in big cities across the country. Co-living is when a group of people—often strangers—come together to share common living spaces, save money, and enjoy a more affordable lifestyle. Apartment buildings dedicated to co-living situations will offer 2 or 3 bedroom units with common areas including a living room, kitchen and dining area. Bedrooms and bathrooms may be private or shared. Co-living differs from a typical shared rental (roommate) situation in that co-living spaces are frequently furnished, don’t require long leases, and almost always include WiFi and utilities. They can also include housekeeping services and some even offer catered functions for tenants, housemates, and their guests. Co-living property managers handle billing and repairs of the building, generally through an app. The typical demographic enjoying a co-living lifestyle are millennials and young professionals in large cities and tech hubs such as San Francisco or Austin, but they are also starting to pop up in cities around the world. People of all ages who find themselves in need of affordable housing are increasingly looking to co-living as a viable option.
